1. egg white, kale & cheese scramble for breakfast - we're doing a 21 day Greens for Breakfast Challenge

2. when my son laughs, really truly laughs - it's a helluva sound

3. home school means if Mommy didn't go to sleep until after 3 am and then slept in until 10 am it is all ok

4. we have been getting dressed everyday instead of staying in our pjs

5. i am going to make homemade pizza for dinner tonight

6. the winds mean we can hear wind chimes, even if they are not ours - which I have hanging in my bedroom from my ceiling fan

4. being able to listen to our music again

5. hot tea & cocoa

6. sigh, being in the house alone with my son -- so much nicer, less stressful
